vote and look at the sandy vote. a microcosm. what you're finding there is john boehner willing to break what is called the hastert rule, which is that to pass measures with majority democrats when they really need to be passed. i have no illusions every bill is going to go down that way. and then with the debt ceiling, same thing. i do think there's some evidence that republicans are saying, you know, in part for public image reasons but maybe in part because of good economic reasons, we can't keep whacking away at the economy like this to please our base we ha. >> it's not about the two parties necessarily shifting their philosophical positions or moving together but more of a practical decision by the house leadership to recognize the limits on what they can accomplish with the majority in the house and the limits in terms of the public support for their position. you know, one of the things, chuck, the president used the campaign to do was to try to lay out in front of the public the competing visions for approaches to economic growth and deficit reduction. he feels like he'
the bush tax cuts for all, but the wealthiest. also in a hurricane sandy really package. the president has had to rely in the house on a coalition of almost all of the democrats and a handful of republicans. neil. neil: it is interesting that he did not give up on this idea of the privilege versus those who are simply trying to get by. i wondered, was he trying to say get ready for more going after the rich? it was nancy pelosi and chuck schumer who said they believe taxes on the rich should go up. more taxes on the wealthy and the rich should just get over it. what do you make of that tone? >> i think you are absolutely right about that. the issue of income inequality. he said very clearly last week that he expects to see a balanced approach towards deficit reduction going forward. that includes more revenues. we presume that means more tax revenues from wealthier families, wealthier americans. neil: all right. this is probably one of those shots that you will not see too often. beyoncÉ and paul ryan. we will just leave it at that. just maybe one of those that i am the only one on the pl

is true is that there is respond to go a crisis and the crisis happened whether it's hurricane sandy, it's gun violence, it's violence, it's gang violence, you need to be prepared and anticipate those kind of acts and be able to prepare to respond to them but more importantly, you have to work to prevent them. >> that's why the recommendations that we put forward really emphasized four key things: being able to expand access to mental health care. you have the situation in new town where clearly the perpetrator there had suffered for some time either undiagnosed or untreated. >> uh-huh. >> that was a major factor that led to that tragedy. >> as well as in aurora colorado? >> yeah. >> or tucson. columbine was also an instance where bullying played significance. increasing the programs and training for educators and students that help prevent violence that help circum vent violent behavior like anti-bullying programs, being able to upgrade school facilities, being able to have security doorstion being able to have buzz-in doors, that infrastructure is par
sandy, the superstorm, wait it hit new york new jersey that put it back on the map. it wasn't talked about by either candidate in the last round. i was totally thrilled, not just that, he spoke to every stripe in his rainbow coalition, historic statement with regard to lesbians, gays, the entire, new emerging majority. all of that i think is in jeopardy if we don't do anything about climate change. he can do a lot of things with executive orders, the existing coal plants could be made more clean with executive authority. also he should do a bilateral with the leadership of china. china's having a horrible environmental crisis, air quality's going down. an opportunity for both superpowers to sit down. the president's unleashed, unchained, willing to speak from his heart. you'll see a very different second term. >> anna, you're always unleashed and unchained, anna. you are never a wallflower about any of these things. talk about the tone here because fellow republicans not happy about it. they didn't think it was genuine reaching across the group. they called it, quote, a harshly ideol
reform was out of her office especially the response to hurricane sandy. >> john: if she hadn't left the governor's office of arizona, we wouldn't have jan brewer today. >> jennifer: on the west coast, michael, obviously it is early on the west coast. i know that progressives community has got their tvs all turned on to current tv to watch the crowds walking in. but what -- you know, i assume you're in portland for different reasons. >> yeah. i'm in portland for a different reason. as a matter of fact, i'll be in san francisco later today for the rest of our coverage. and i'll see you on "the war room" i'm sure. the whole -- it's funny. yesterday, of course, they were marking the anniversary of roe v. wade. i was walking through this liberal city that i didn't know very well which i've come to like in the few days i've been here. i was walking through and there was a pro-life demonstration there. there was a smattering of people in the middle of pioneer square. not a big number of people there. i thought how ironic that tomorrow we're going to be inaugurating a president who has, aga
in a way you wonder because of superstorm sandy and the amount of money, if you are going to talk about the budget, you have to have this conversation about the climate since these natural disasters clearly are becoming more and more, but i want to point out a quote that barack obama said in an interview five years ago when he was still running for president, and he compared himself to reagan. he says i think ronald reagan changed the trajectory in america in a way that richard nixon did not and in a way that bill clinton did not. the reason i point out that quote. i thought it was an important quote, and it gave you a sense of what kind of president obama wanted to be, and i think you've heard in the maugral address today in the way that president obama believes ronald reagan mainstreamed the conservative movement in the 1980s, that one of the things he wants his president to do is to basically mainstream the liberal progressive movement in the same way, so if the country is, say, center or center right, you can have this argument that when he leaves that he has mainstreamed it and mov
hurricane sandy that hit the whole east coast -- people have been warning for years with the rising sea levels, the more intense storms, the climate change that we have to get our infrastructure right. we thought we found that out from hurricane katrina. of course, we did nothing because our government is not responding to any of the major challenges we have in this country. the idea, starting around 1981, was to star of the beast, so- called, to just get the size of the government down -- to start -- to starve the beast. one of the problems we have is an underclass that cannot find its way out and no longer has any kind of helping hand. >> i think jeffrey sachs just shanked you. and being funny. i thought i heard him say that one of the mistakes we made was back in the 1980's when you were around and running things. one of the mistakes was making our priority all about shrinking government. >> jeffrey sachs and i have a fundamental disagreement, and i suspect most of this panel will have a fundamental disagreement about a couple of facts. it is a fact that this coming march is the 49th
. >> after snowstorm sandy. and being together and working together, republican and democrat. you asked, what i have liked to have more of in the inauguration address, it would have been the spirit that you saw with christie and obama. and i like the fact that after that, republicans, instead of being peeved at him, oh, my gosh, you helped o o eed out th guy, they liked it -- >> well, they were forced. >> i think the most important speech that chris christie has given was at the reagan library, where he talked about compromise and leadership. and he said, that's the way -- it's not complicated, how you get things done. you get things done through compromise and leadership. and compromise has been a totally dirty word inside the republican party here. >> it's strange. something's wrong. >> if you can keep that theme going, it's very important. >> does it begin anew tomorrow. wrap it up with your thoughts on the rnc meeting tomorrow. >> like i said, we want to be successful. and i feel like what you've seen out of the republicans over the last couple of days is a much smarter approach, to focus
boehner, if he wants to get bipartisan vote as he did on sandy relief, he has to be able to drop the hat, and it's personal changes and institutional changes. >> mr. mayor, you run one of the largest cities in the country, san antonio, texas. what can the president do to help? what do you need? >> the president can do what he has began during his first term. two great examples are to collaborate with agencies in his administration. making the transportation department work with the education department, work with the e.p.a., sustainable communicates, promised neighborhoods. to invest in brain power and education, and also lift up neighborhoods at the same time. and to his credit, he's been more collabrative with mayors, i think than we've seen in a long time. so i have a lot of hope for the second term. >> mayor castro of san antonio, texas, and brother joaquin castro in congress, very kind of you to spend a moment with us. >> great to be here. >> the president will be leaving the capitol shortly. he'll go out the east front where members of the u.s. military have been assembled so that
